Short description and remarks

Engineering point of view :
'Shell and Tube'HeatExchanger are widely spread in the field of
chemical engineering. Still it is not clear how to arrange the tubes
inside the appartus in order to get a optimal heattransferbehaviour.
Beginnig from a simple configuration with only one tube we studied cases for 2x2 upto 5x5 tube arrangemnets for
constant circumference as well as constant area.

Mathematical point of view :
This page contains the 2D simulation of fluid flows in a square of
4 units with one circle of radius 1.5, located
at the centre of square i.e. at x = 2 & y = 2. The calculation
starts from rest.
The flow is observed with the Reynolds number, Re = 1000.
This simulation is part of a
SoftwarePraktikum at the University of Dortmund in 2004.
